Former Bihar chief minister, Rabri Devi, on Tuesday caused a new political controversy after she asked the local BJP leader, Sushil Kumar Modi, to get Chief Minister Nitish Kumar married to his sister.
Rabri, the wife of the RJD chief, Lalu Prasad Yadav, told reporters, “Le jayen Modi Ji apne ghar. Le jakar apne bahan se shadi karwayen. (Modi ji should take him to his house. And get him married to his sister.)”
She made these comments in response to reporters’ questions on growing proximity between BJP and Kumar.
Rabri later clarified and said that her comments were made in jest and they must not be taken seriously.
“Media wale bole Sushil Kumar Modi kahe hain Nitish Kumar RJD chhor BJP aajaye, hum bole Modi ji Nitish ko godi mein utha lejaaye.” (Media persons were quoting Sushil Modi as saying that Nitish will soon join the BJP, I think he should take Nitish away),” She was quoted by Indian Express.
